Mammoth Brewing company is proud to our second annual Wet Harvest beer. This year, we chose to brew an imperial pale lager. Using pristine alpine water from the headwaters of the Owens Valley and cascade hops from Banner Springs Ranch in the Glass Mountains. The hops were harvested and bought to our brewery - still warm and moist from the field for every step of the brewing process. From mash-in though filtration. Using few speciality malts and a unique lager yeast the beer has all the hop character and bitterness of any IPA but was fermented cold at 50 degree F so at to further highlight the aromatic qualities of these high altitude wet hops.

On tap at brewery, took home a growler. One of the most delicious lagers ever!!! Color is a nice golden color. Good head and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy. The flavour is where you really notice the wet hops. You really wouldn’t even know this was a lager.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Color is golden straw. Aroma is caramel malt and hops. Flavor is sweet malts and some hoppiness on the finish. Palate is light and smooth. Overall a good lager.

A yeasty buttery smell and a slight aroma of hops. Wierd for a lager but it does have a lager smell as well. Has a blonde hazy color with a decent head. Very light bodied slight yeast after taste. A sharp bitter taste but not overwhelming. That buttery smell comes thru in the mouthfeel towards the end of the taste. Leaves with a thick feeling for a moment. The caramel malts show thru for a moment slightly. Overall not a bad brew it is like an ipa but it is a lager. You ban feel the alcohol in the back of ur throat. Worth a buy
